Houston Methodist Hospital is please to offer baccalaureate nursing students the opportunity to enhance their learning and understand of their chose profession through an internship in our Houston Methodist Advancement into Professional Practice (MAPP) program.
Whether you choose the year-round MAPP SPN program offered for Houston area students or the summer MAPP SPN program specifically for students outside the Houston and Galveston region, you will experience hands-on training while working side by side with registered nurses in direct patient care.
MAPP is a paid position with students assigned to work in a nursing department within Houston Methodist.
The assimilation into the health care setting will prove invaluable to students as they begin their nursing careers. Individuals who successfully complete the MAPP program will be better prepared to meet the demands and challenges facing tomorrow's nurses.
